CareFirst BCBS plans West Baltimore workforce development space

CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield will lease a 20,000-square-foot space in Baltimore, which will host workforce development efforts and employee workspace. 

According to a Jan. 23 news release, the space is located in the city's Mondawmin Mall and is part of a larger revitalization effort. 

The space will host workforce development training, employee workspace and community engagement initiatives. CareFirst graduated the first cohort of its West Baltimore Workforce Development program last year, according to the release, which prepares students for careers in sales, community health and more with the insurer. 

"We believe anchor institutions in our region have a meaningful responsibility to support Greater Baltimore's economic growth," CareFirst CEO Brian Pieninck said in the release. "With this initiative, we are demonstrating that when we join together to invest with our communities and support the development of local talent, we can create a path to shared opportunity and success where health outcomes improve, economic prosperity improves, and we're all better for it."
